A loan of $1,525 helped a member to buy raw silk and to pay for the labor costs that help to dye the color of her silk.


Laiheng's Group's story

Originally from Koh Sotin district of Kampong Cham province, Laiheng is a mother of three dependent kids who really need her support, as one is too young for schooling while the remaining two are in school. The main sources of her family income are from a silk weaving business and a fishing business.

Laiheng has never been with VisionFund (Kiva’s partner) before, and neither have her other five fellow members. All of them including Laiheng are seeking 1,000,000 KHR each. As the leader, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy raw silk and to pay for the labor costs that help to dye the color of her silk.

Laiheng hopes that she can gain a good income from her business so that she can expand her business and keep her kids in school until the tertiary level.
